Studies suggest that a compound called sulforaphane has strong anti-cancer properties. Sulforaphane is a phytochemical that is naturally found in cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli 🥦, cabbage , and kale, but it is quite high in broccoli sprouts. Because of this, I decided to grow some! And… it only takes 5 days!

🌿Getting mold should depend on how well you wash it (use filtered water), the humidity and cleanliness of the environment, how much it’s aerated and able to drain water from the container (hence the holes on the lid). If I need to rinse them, I use 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water after rinsing with water first. I didn’t have mold during my growing process and of course eating it sooner rather than later will avoid mold from growing ! People who are immunocompromised should be extra cautious when eating/growing sprouts and other raw foods.
